MORELAND â€” The Bennett family, owners of KARRS in Moreland, wants to deliver "A Christmas Feast Fit for a King" to a deserving family.
What they need is help help identifying people with a need.
"All you have to do is write a short letter explaining why the family deserves a free dinner," said Charlie Bennett. "We will then choose one of those stories as a winner."
The deadline for recommendations is Monday, Dec. 19, so a winner can then be selected and contacted.
"On Christmas Day, we will deliver a fully cooked hot meal to the family in their home," Bennett said.

THOMAS â€” Snake River bands need your vote. The band is competing for a private grant of $25,000 through the Pepsi Refresh Project.
"In five days of voting, the Snake River Band has placed 17 out of 224 entries," band director Randy Brady said.
To receive the $25,000 grant, Snake River needs to finish in the top 15 by the end of the month.
"[The grant money] would do a lot for our program," said Brady.
Brady's idea is to replace old, broken instruments and fill in instrumentation. Filling out instrumentation will make the band sound better and boost interest.
